Christians, Muslims and Jesus

This chapter explains that during the early twentieth century, Christian missionaries travelled to Muslims lands where they formulated their own ambivalent opinions on the Muslim faith and the Muslim way of life. Most of these missionaries view Islam and Muslim piety with a mixture of both contempt and admiration. It is held that Islam is a simple religion in which submitting to God's will is enough to encapsulate the very heart of its faith. It adds that this simplicity is in opposition to Biblical realism and in the thinking that God constantly acts in holy sovereign freedom, conclusively embodied in the man Jesus Christ.
